Next Biometrics wins $750,000 order for fingerprint readers in India

Next Biometrics has received a USD $750,000 order for UIDAI and STQC certified biometric fingerprint readers for an Aadhaar-based governmental program in India, the company announced, adding that the customer has given a 20 percent upfront payment, and the first fingerprint readers have been shipped.

The announcement notes increased demand for biometric solutions for India’s Aadhaar program is providing Next with opportunities to expand its market share in the region.

The Norwegian biometrics firm began expanding its operations in India in 2018 to support the company’s increased activity in the country. It gained a more established presence in 2019 and expects a high demand increase for 2020.

“We are very pleased that the work put in over the past months have resulted in the successful nomination for this project,” said Alain Faburel, Next Biometrics’ Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. “We see increased deployment of Aadhaar programs and solutions and we are gaining further traction in this market.”

“The network of partners and distributors that we have built up is key for our continued success in government programs,” said Vishal Pandole, Head of Sales India at Next Biometrics. “This adds to the superior performance, reliability and user-friendliness of our sensor technology proven in numerous real-life projects and use-cases in India and globally.”

The biometric fingerprint readers will be delivered in the first part of 2020 and will be part of the “Navarathnalu” program in Andhra Pradesh state to upgrade living standards in rural areas by equipping volunteers with fingerprint readers to provide government services for eligible people in their households.
